Sinead O'Connor – Lullaby For Cain lyrics

From the silence, from the night
Comes a distant lullaby.
Cry--remember that first cry,
Your brother standing by.
And lot of loved-- beloved sons of mine.
Sing a lullaby; mother is close by.
Innocent date-- such innocent eyes!--
Envy stole your brothers life.
Came home murdered piece of mind.
Left you nightmares on the pillow.
Sleep now...

Soul-- surrendering your soul.
The heart you not whole.
For love, but love walked on.
Cast into the dark.
Branded with the mark--
Of shame; of Cain.
From a garden of God's light,
To a wilderness of night.
Sleep now; sleep now...
